PROMOTING QUALITY DAIRY PRODUCTS SINCE 1834
Agri-Expo has been involved in the South African Dairy Industry Since 1834, when the first South African Dairy Championships was held with one goal in mind-TO PROMOTE EXCELLENCE IN DAIRY PRODUCTS. To date the annual South African Dairy Championships is a fine example of this. An average of 800 dairy products are judged annually by 70 judges in 9 categories. This Championships awards dairy manufacturers for hard work and gives recognition for quality products.
Agri-Expo created the Qualité emblem in 2000 and today it is South Africa’s only symbol of exceptional quality in the dairy industry. Winning products are crowned SA Champions and only a few products are awarded with the Qualité Mark of Excellence. The Qualité product with the highest score is awarded the Dairy Product of the Year. Agri-Expo is furthermore involved with developing new markets for upcoming cheese makers, educational promotions of dairy products and the Burgundy Cheese Making Fellowship. Agri-Expo is also the owner and organizer of the South African Cheese Festival, the biggest outdoor culinary event in Southern Africa.
